We are from all over the world. Some of us have chosen to make Canada our home, while some of us have welcomed Canada as our home because of circumstances beyond our control. Our diverse cultures enrich the city. We wish to contribute our skills and experiences to strenghthening our neighbourhoods, workplaces, and the city. In Ottawa, we are growing at twice the rate of the general population and will be instrumental in replacing the aging workforce.
